get to know us

We are a team of believers who believe in the Holy Trinity and live by the teachings of the Holy Bible. We believe in personal integrity which is displayed by showing respect and love to one another when no one but God is watching. We believe that respect should be given with dignity while walking in Christ’s love. Our mission is to bring hope to those who are lost and forgotten by having Christ-centered mentoring relationships between youth and young adults in tough life-situations and volunteers of Lost and Found Ministries. Our goal is to inspire breakthroughs from the way life treats abandoned children and achieve immediate, lasting change in their lives. We will include a non-profit house of refuge for men that were in prison and forgotten by society. The goal is to restore men to their rightful position in society by giving them a place to stay. Mentors will help build a strong relationship between them and God. Emphasizing the

importance of dignity and honor, while restoring broken relationships with families and friends.


We desire to partner with our community and Christian organizations globally to spiritually free people from the effects of imprisonment and poverty. Those partnerships with organizations will be used to restore the old waste places of our local community to be used as places where youth will be mentored and taught life-skills. We believe that transformed lives impacts the community in a positive way. We are currently in the process of implementing a program to obtain four main goals; help students to be promoted to the next grade level or graduate, stay out of the juvenile justice system, improve their mindset toward precarious behaviors, and increase their educational capability. 

The house of refuge will provide an atmosphere for holistic healing that will empower men with God given purpose. We desire to give hope to the hopeless, building dreams in a place of despair.


Lost and Found Ministries stays very active in our local and surrounding communities by volunteering with other organizations, donating funds for specific needs, and hosting community outreaches.
